Have a cup

A Simple Cup of Coffee
(Think about it the next time you pour a cup.)
A group of alumni, all highly established in their
respective careers, got together for a visit with
their old university professor.
The conversation soon turned to complaints about
the endless stress of work and life in general...
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went
into the kitchen and soon returned with a large pot of
coffee and an eclectic assortment of cups:
porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal - some plain,
some expensive, some quite exquisite.
Quietly he told them to help themselves to some
fresh coffee..
When each of his former students had a cup of
coffee in hand, the old professor quietly cleared his
throat and began to patiently address the
small gathering...
''You may have noticed that all of the nicer
looking cups were taken up first, leaving behind the
plainer and cheaper ones. While it is only
natural for you to want only the best for
yourselves, that is actually the source of much of
your stress-related problems."
He continued...''Be assured that the cup itself
adds no quality to the coffee. In fact, the cup merely
disguises or dresses up what we drink.
What each of you really wanted was coffee, not a
cup, but you instinctively went for the best cups...
Then you began eyeing each other's cups....''
''Now consider this: Life is coffee. Jobs, money,
and position in society are merely cups. They are
just tools to shape and contain Life,
and the type of cup we have does not truly define
nor change the quality of the Life we live. Often, by
concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy
the coffee that God has provided us... God brews the
coffee, but he does not supply the cups. Enjoy your

The happiest people don't have the best of
everything, they just make the best of everything they
have... So please remember:
Live simply. Love generously. Care Deeply. Speak
Kindly. Leave the Rest to God.

Today's Funnies

Customer: "How much are these oranges?"


Vendor: "Two for a quarter."


Customer: "How much is just one?"


Vendor: "Fifteen cents."


Customer: "Then I'll take the other one."

When I was a kid, we walked 10 miles to school every day, uphill, often in the rain or snow. Man, did we feel stupid when we found out there was a bus.

Tyler's joke

The kids were going through a deck of bible trivia cards and the question came; What kind of animal did Peter get a coin from? Tyler quickly answered a fish! Jokingly I added what kind of fish? Again just as quick he answered, A Goldfish!! Get it a coin from a goldfish... Maybe he will be a comedian some day.

Tyler lost a tooth!

Tyler lost his first tooth today! He came in my room and woke me up this morning to show it to me. His tooth had been wiggly for a few weeks now but he was going to just let it fall out on its own, that is until his little sister Aleigha noticed she had a wiggly tooth as well. Being our most competitive child he was not going to let his little sister loose a tooth before him (after all she is almost 2 years younger) and so he set to wiggling it until it finally fell out while he was still in bed this morning. -Angie

Summer Dress

I made this summer dress for my niece Aislyn who is going to be having her !st birthday at the end of this month. I just learned how to shirr fabric and couldn't wait to try it out. The dress is much brighter than the picture shows and not all the colors showed up either. I guess I need to stop using my phone to take pictures :) -Angie

Actual excuses for calling in sick
~ I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn't come
to work knowing my employee records may now contain false information.

~ I've used up all my sick I'm calling in dead.

A teacher sees a student entering the classroom, his hands are very dirty.
She stopped him and said, "John, please wash your hands. My goodness, what
would you say if I came into the room with hands like that?"
Smiling the boy replied, "I think I would be too polite to mention it."

A mom was driving her five year old son to McDonald's one day and they
passed a car accident. Whenever the Mom saw something terrible like that,
she would always say a prayer for those who might be hurt, so she pointed
and said to her son, "We should pray."
From the back seat she heard his earnest request: "Please, God, don't let
those cars block the entrance to McDonald's."

The optimist says the glass is half full. The pessimist says the glass is
half empty. The engineer says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Q: What do you get when you cross an owl with a skunk?
A: A bird that smells but doesn't give a hoot.
